of justice to the united states congress, specifically senator grassley, months later, more than nine months laters -- later, they had to rescind that letter because it was a lie. so we've got a dead border patrol agent, thousands of weapons unaccounted for. i think this meets the standard to making sure we get to the bottom of. bill: i know what your amendment said. i'm not quite sure what it does, however. it says that everybody should be held accountable. that might be nice on paper but i'm not sure what action follows that, if any. >> well, one of the concerns is that they have been lying and covering up what happened in fast & furious, and what this does is i think it will withhold funds from the department of justice to do those activities. we still had 40 democrats who said of course you should be able to use taxpayer money to lie to congress, of course you should. that's how ridiculous this is, but if they do that, if they use these funds to lie to congress and we can demonstrate they lied to congress you've got a whole set of charges that can be laid on. bill: 22 categories in this

an invasion of the grand caymans. this is a complicated, complex, international situation. the united states is doing things. they're doing sanctions, they are leading the fight in the u.n. but in the end the question is do we or do we not commit military resores and if mitt romney thinks that's a good idea, frankly he's way out of his league. martha: the feel, though, is, bob and and remarks that this is the end game, that assad will likely not survive all of this and if he does he's going to do it with brute military force, the likes of which the country probably hasn't seen yet, andrea. >> here's the issue and this is so tough, martha, because there are no good guys in this fight. bob is partially right and mitt romney is partially right. look, we do not want to commit troops, i wholeheartedly agree with bob, it's a civil war, we should not be militarizing anything in that country. however, i do -- and mitt romney, to be clear, didn't say that we should. he did say that we should provide arms to the rebels. now, there are dangers with that because the rebels are islamist so are we really
